Red Bull Air Race

Having just returned from Barcelona where we were watching the Red Bull Air Race, I thought I'd start a thread for the subject.

Has anyone watched any footage of it?

The Spain race will be shown on ITV4 on Saturday tea time.

The official website is here

A selection of my photos are here

What do you think?

Paul

Re: Red Bull Air Race

I've seen it a few times by chance and it's compulsive viewing but it always seems to be on obscure channels at strange times. Maybe they could stage a race in Rossendale around the Scout Moor wind farm? I would be more fun than flying through those inflated cones.

Re: Red Bull Air Race

Great photos, Paul.

I do like watching it but as digbylix says it is on at some funny times and strange channels.
I always seem to catch it when I'm up with the little fella on a Sunday morning - I think it's on something like Transworld Sport on Channel 4.

Re: Red Bull Air Race

You lucky devil! I watch it on channel 4 whenever it's on and would love to see it for real. Favourite bit is when they accidently chop the tops off the cones!

That happened a few times last weekend, it's like watching a well oiled machine seeing the guys rebuild them.

It takes about 2 minutes to repair a cone and re-inflate it, 'appen as well as the planes are circling waiting to start their run with only 50 litres of fuel on board.

Re: Red Bull Air Race

Cheers all for the replys about the photos, I took about 900 photos on the Sunday afternoon

Unfortunatly some of them were out of focus and some were of where the planes had been when I pressed the shutter release

There are some more photos here, keep working through them and putting them on my Photobucket site.

Paul
